I find it curious that St. Peter’s Episcopal Church sponsors a festival that takes place on Sunday. It is more a norm these days for individuals to not keep the sabbath day holy, but how a church could ignore this and by sponsoring this event encourage others to break this commandment is beyond me.

Sabbath day, commandment, c'mon this is 2012, enough with silly superstitions.
